In an email to the media, the Sandy Springs Police Department Sunday announced it is looking to identify the person responsible for a serious injury crash that occurred this morning at about 4 a.m. on Roswell Road at the westbound entrance ramp to Interstate 285.
A motorcycle was traveling south on Roswell Road when it was hit by a vehicle, described as a white Jeep Grand Cherokee, that turned in front of and collided with the bike. The driver of the vehicle fled west on 285. The Cherokee is missing the grill and entire front bumper assembly. The victim was taken to Atlanta Medical Center and is listed in critical condition. He is identified as 22-year old Alejandro Palombini, of Buford.
In an email update Monday, Rose said the department’s Hit and Run Unit investigators are working with the car manufacturer to trace the parts of the white Jeep Cherokee left behind following the accident early Sunday morning. Palombini remains in critical condition at Atlanta Medical Center.
In a news release Monday, Sandy Springs Police announced it has also obtained a photo of the Jeep Cherokee wanted in connection with the hit and run. The car in the photo is leaving the Mosaic Apartments at 5675 Roswell Road just prior to the collision. The photo reveals a passenger in the Cherokee. It is believed that the Cherokee dropped off another person at the Mosaic prior to this photo.
